You need to take the inside door cover to get access to the inner workings of the window motor, linkages etc. If nobody has used a jimy in the past to unlock your door, (the reason I say this it's because the linkage could be disingaged when someone tries to unlock your door with a jimy) ok if that didn't happended than its the door selenoid (its a small actuator that releases the lock once your press the open door button.) If you are mechanicly incline, I suggest you take your tools and go to a junk yard to get your selenoid. In the process you see how everything works inside your door and it makes it easy for you to figure out how to install the part. The other reason its the price, if you get this part through the dealer it's a little expensive.
Good luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Opening the drivers door doesnt automatically open the passangers door


Some vehicle locking systems allow a single button press to unlock the driver's side door and require a second button press to unlock the passenger side door. Likewise, use of the key to unlock the driver's side door does not automatically unlock the passenger side.

Doors not locking


had a similar problem. remote would not work doors and inside switch would not work on passsanger side. There is a part below the passanger side door window and lock switch called the PDM or passanger door module.capable of some really strange behavior as it basically is a mini computer and rf signal receiver. May try reprograming your remotes first, if that doesn't work get new PDM. need to give VIN to parts folk to get it. Think it was about 200.00. Need to remove passanger side door panel and then take apart armrest with door swithes. Kind of tricky. funky screw on the front which has to be loosened and door panel must be off to get to it. anyway after install reprogram the remotes to the PDM. It involves off on, off,on ignition while holding down the unlock door switch, then hold the unlock on the remote?????? the sequence in on the net just search it out for your year.
